Celebrate

Celebrate good times, in this Doré Smooth ballroom gown! A stunning ballroom dress full of excitement and celebration. To begin, the majority of the dress is made from a stretch jersey fabric in black. It makes the bodice, as well as, the right long sleeve. The left long sleeve is made from a stretch fabric in magenta. Additionally, the magenta fabric starts at the left sleeve, drapes over the left bust, and wraps around the waist like a sash. The skirt is has several godets made from a black chiffon and a lustrous fabric. The black chiffon creates scarves that cascade over the shiny and colorful print fabric that has several shades of pink, purples, and greens. Lastly, the dress has built-in bra cups and a bodysuit.

The embellishments on this Doré Smooth gown are blossoming and beautiful. Firstly, Swarovski crystals create a floral motif on the front and back of the dress. The floral motif matches the print fabric on the godets. Several colors of Swarovski crystals create the elegant flowers, including Fuchsia, Tangerine, Rose, and Light Rose to name a few. Similarly, the rest of the black fabric sparkles with Jet (black) Swarovski crystals, and the magenta fabric with Fuchsia crystals. To summarize, this entire dress is gorgeous and sparkly!

The blossoming trend of florals, is a perennial trend that is here to stay. It can always be seen on the catwalk. Guo Pei ended her show at Paris Fashion Week, with a model who had a floating field of grass and flowers behind her. The model is entrenched in thousands of dainty yellow flowers, and looks as if she is laying in the middle of a flower field. Chanel had several all white concoctions with elegant embroidered flowers. Suits and skirts were enlivened with daisies and dahlias.
